Incredibly Versatile Pickup

By Lele

from Venezuela

See all my reviews

Comments about Bill Lawrence L500R Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup:

I've had this pickup for ten years with a Washburn N2 guitar, and I can say that this pickup has given me almost every tone I could ever wish for the bridge position. It has a very high output and if installed with a coil splitting function you get hot fender tele/strat bridge single coil sounds of early days.

Very Nice Pickup For The Money

By Blackvikingmetal

from Nelsonville, OH

Comments about Bill Lawrence L500R Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup:

Overall I am pleased with the tone and output with this pickup. I have it wired up as a single humbucker in the bridge position with only a volume pot, no tone, in a 80's LP copy. Just too bad that the Bill Lawrence L500XL Hot Humbucker can't hold a candle to the L500R. I originally bought both with the intentions of putting the XL in the bridge and the R in the neck. Unfortunately the XL is very dull and extremely muddy with no harmonic response at all. But fortunately the R sounds great in both the neck or bridge position. It would pair up really nice with a medium output Seymour Duncan in the neck. Perhaps a 59' or Alnico Pro II or even a Jazz.
Nice full sound. Good with distortion, big and chunky with nice harmonics. So so clean. Probably would be good clean in coil split mode.
Seems pretty solid.
For the price you can't go wrong with this pickup. To me this sounds almost as nice as my Seymour Duncan JB or the Duncan Custom but for around $20 less.

Great Multipurpose Pickup

By Old Hippie

from Shreveport, LA

See all my reviews

Comments about Bill Lawrence L500R Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup:

Bought 2 of these and placed them in my fender strat. I have 3 strats on stage with me. The other 2 are loaded with seymour duncan hotrails.Was looking for that old humbucker sound for classic rock. They did not disappoint. They have a very warm full sound and they overdrive very cleanly. You may have to boost the highs a little bit for balance, but other then that a great pickup for the money. I get a good sustain on lead rides with heavy distortion. I highly recommend and their not half bad in the studio either.

    Comments about Bill Lawrence L500R Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup:

    Why pay more, I can't imagine getting a better pickup. It is a full range clean sounding pickup.

    Has a bit more treble than I expected for a neck pickup, but it just so happens, I have a tone control on my guitar, and three on my amp. When I turn down the treble it doesn't get muddy. It still has a full range of sound with a little more 'color' than other pickups I have tried.

    It did not come with a wiring diagram, but they have one on the website, and other places on the web.

        Comments about Bill Lawrence L500R Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup:

        The overall tone of this pickup is excellent with one rider. I bought it to pair with a Duncan Dimebucker in the bridge position on a V . This replace a decent stock Gibson pickup. I love the combo ... that said the pickup while very articulate, sensitive and aggressive is somewhat bright. Now, that said I knew it was supposed to be bright in advance from other reviews ... the Dimebucker is bright too. I'd rather have a pickup that is a little bright that I can control with a tone control than a muddy pickup. I have corrected the tone to my tastes by adding a very inexpensive 1 MegOhm resistor across the 500K pot making it effectively a 333 K pot ... somewhat between a 250 and a 500 ... PERFECT ! ... It's great value pickup and a keeper.
